Health…making well informed choices that maximize well-being.
The way we care for ourselves shapes everything about us. Consider the following:
An average woman applies more than 200 chemicals to her skin each day; approximately 60% of these chemicals are absorbed into the bloodstream. With the number of people with eczema, allergies and other health related issues like cancer on the rise – could these conditions be aggravated by the growing number of chemicals used in our personal care products?
Consider carefully not only what goes on your skin, but your hair as well. Many hair care products contain potentially unhealthy ingredients (harmful not only to us, but to our environment). Shampoos cause the greatest number of adverse reactions of all hair care products. This difficulty is exacerbated by when & where these chemicals are applied: at our skins most vulnerable time – when we are in, or right after, a hot shower. Hot water (and soaps) washes off our skin’s protective sebum while opening pores and allowing skin to more readily accept whatever chemicals we apply.
These harsh detergents, chemical fragrances and numerous irritating compounds have damaging long-term side effects. NEUMA recognizes the need to provide products that are free of carcinogens, harmful chemicals and environmental toxins. Our products are lovingly formulated free of parabens, gluten, disodium EDTA, benzyl alcohol, SLS, SLES and other risky ingredients.
NEUMA was developed by a leading team of cosmetic chemists. Their challenge – to create a professional performance hair care line that would be free of ingredients suspected of contributing to human or environmental health problems. By incorporating essential oils, certified organic extracts, essential fatty acids and vegetable proteins, our products treat your hair, and our environment, with kindness. These safe, mild ingredients leave your hair healthy and silky with a radiant shine. Stylists and friends painstakingly test each of our formulas to ensure true professional performance honoring our natural, healthy and organic principals.
In developing NEUMA, we discovered a lot about ourselves…our choices, our responsibility for our planet & each other, our health & well-being. We are hopeful for what our tomorrow may look like because of the choices we are making today.
NEUMA is about being beautiful…. in all the right ways.
